The LG Twins brought catcher Park Dong-won, who earned 6.5 billion won, very well.
Park Dong-won started as the 7th catcher in the 5th game of the season against KT in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 18th and led the team to a 9-5 come-from-behind victory with 2 hits, 3 RBIs and 1 run in 4 at-bats.
Park Dong-won, who warmed up with a shortstop grounder in the 2nd inning and a floating ball in the 4th inning, showed his true value in the third at-bat. It was a chance with one out and a full base in the 5th inning against 3-3. Park Dong-won met KT starter Koh Young-pyo and was put on a 1B-2S unfavorable count, but hit a 135Km two-seam on the 4th pitch and connected it with a timely double to the middle right. It was a come-from-behind sweeping hit that called first base runner Moon Bo-kyung, second base runner Oh Ji-hwan, and third base runner Kim Hyun-soo home. Afterwards, Lee Jae-won was responsible for running away from a timely hit.
Park Dong-won did not stop. Appearing as the lead in the 7th inning with a lead of 8-3, he met the changed pitcher Lee Chae-ho and hit a double to left-center to achieve multi-hits in 2 consecutive games. Park Dong-won, who was replaced by runner Shin Min-jae, finished the game in a good mood, receiving enthusiastic cheers from the home fans at first base. Afterwards, Jae-Won Lee’s base hit and Min-Sung Kim’s sacrifice fly came out, which also served as a basis for scoring runs. 카지노사이트
Park Dong-won signed a free agent contract with LG last November for a total of 6.5 billion won over 4 years. From the first year of his contract, he has been showing signs of great success. Prior to this day, in 36 games, he showed off a batting average of 2.27, 10 homers, 25 RBIs, and an OPS of .967, rising to the top of the home run, and was leading the stabilization of the LG mound by showing off a sense of stability in the pitcher’s lead. In the last 10 games, his batting average was 3.8 and 7. He hit 6 home runs, and he continued that momentum on this day as well as a solver.
The meticulous guidance of director Yeom Gyeong-yeop, a teacher he met again after the Nexen days, also plays a part in his performance. Manager Yeom, whom we met prior to the game, said, “Park Dong-won’s batting average goes up because he is enduring a falling ball. He is trying to refrain from opening his left shoulder and create a striking surface. He himself practices a lot,” he explained the secret to his success.
Thanks to the performance of free agent catcher Park Dong-won, LG defeated KT two days in a row and decorated the three-game series with a winning series. The investment of 6.5 billion won in November last year is gradually becoming a godsend.
